Master Grooming Tools Ergonomic Professional Nail Clippers

I have been dog grooming for over ten years and I have always used nail clippers. These Professional Master Grooming Nail Clippers have been very dependable until you get them submerged in water and don't clean really quick. No clipper does well when that happens, they either may rust or get dull real quick. So, when that happened, I decided to purchase a new nail clipper that will take me into the twentieth century.  I purchased the  model large nail clippers, and I spent $19.99 and I have gotten several years of usage out of them so far, and had not intended on ever replacing them. But, since my first set got ruined I had to replace the old ones and I figured that I may as well spend the extra money and get a really good set of clippers. The only problem with this product is the price, this one cost me $19.99 and that was over two years ago. You can find this in any grooming magazine such as Pet Edge.

Description
The model # is TP61718 (TP stands for Top Performance)and is designed for all day use, for either dogs or cats. You can use this continually for an 8 hours straight without needing any kind of sharpening, this does so because of the high strength surgical stainless steel that the blades are made out of. This has a swivel nail guard that will help you stop before you cut the nail too deep. The handles of these nail clippers are ergonomically fit, so the you will be able to hold them for a long time without your hands hurting or making them fatigued. None of the parts are re-moveable from the main body of the clippers. This also has a break resistant body with ribbed rubber grips, even though you should not have to worry about anything but the blades going dull. The blades are made of hardened surgical stainless steel. These only weigh 4.1 ounces, and is 6-1/4" in length. At the widest part of the clippers they are only 5/8" thick.

Experience
Some people may be afraid to use these and cut their pets nails, but if you are careful you should have no problem. The problem lies with the animal and how cooperative they are.  You will have to hold the paw securely by holding onto the elbow area or holding the paw firmly. If you are afraid the animal will notice and they will fight you. So, you need to be quick about doing this job. The smaller animals with white nails will be the easiest but the large animals with black nails will be a little harder.  You do not want to cut the quick, because you will hear a yipe out of your pet, letting you know that you are getting too close.  Plus, you will have blood start to come out all over the place. To be safe you can just snip the end of the nail a little to take the sharp point off of the nail and if you have a large animal then you also have to take of the sharp sides after the initial cut.

When I first got this home, I thought that this would be a little heavy because of the size, but I got used to them in a hurry. It will take you some time to get used to the guard. This is really nice the way they have made the grips pre-fit the body, the ribbed grips help for guarding against hand fatigue. The metal contacts will align perfectly, there is no miss matching when these clippers are compressed. The fact that you do not have to worry about any nails that are too long is quite nice. All of my previous clippers fit into my hand with ease, but these just feel more balanced. When you have the type of nail clippers that have a guard and it slides up and over the end of the nail this will be add insurance if you can get used to using it.  This also holds a high strength steel spring that will help reopen the clippers after you have clipped the nail off.  

These are very durable and if you have ever done any grooming before you also know that there are animals that do not like to have their nails done. You will, from time to time, get an animal that likes to kick things off of the grooming table.  I have dropped this, and had it knocked to the floor by my dogs and all it did was bounce a little. I really worried more about bending the blade instead of breaking them. This has a lifetime warranty.

I have used these to cut all types of dogs from a Miniature Schnauzer, German Shepherd, Chow, Newfoundland, and Cocker Spaniels etc. This is excellent for all of the types of breeds that you may come across. Once you take this clipper out of the very fantastic durable case that it comes in, you will never put them away again. I have several pairs of these and like the sharpness of the blades and they have cut all of my cats and dogs, as long as you line up the nails quickly and give them a quick snip the dogs and cats will only twitch a little.

Conclusion
I have been using this clipper for just over two years and I would not go back to my old ones if I was forced to. If you can afford one of these clippers, I would highly recommend getting one. But, if you only groom once in a while then it may not be worth the money to invest in this tool, but I would think twice about not spending the money on a pair of these . You have to take care of this set and keep it wiped down so that the blades will stay sharp. As long as you keep this product oiled on a regular basis, this will last you for quite some time. I have also enjoyed the fact that all I have to do is grab the clippers out of the bag and no more fumbling looking around. These are blue in color and kind of stand out from all of the other tools.
